Database modernisation

Migrating databases to cloud PaaS provides great efficiency and cost savings and is often the easiest way to begin app modernisation. PaaS database removes the need to patch, backup, secure and maintain the servers on which you host databases.

AppScore customers who have migrated apps to cloud report that moving databases from hosted servers to PaaS provides immediate estate simplification and other benefits, significantly reducing the TCO of their portfolio.

To help you understand the options available for your apps that have been lifted-and-shifted to cloud, AppScore now makes recommendations for suitable database modernisation options.

We've built an extensive dataset which maps all databases offerings to their PaaS equivalents across AWS and Azure, recommendations are made against this dataset to show you the available options. Future enhancements to this feature will be to show on-premise to cloud PaaS options.

We've added a new dashboard and timeline view to enable you to better track application discovery progress. On the server screen we've also added a % complete bar for server datapoint completeness and number of servers mapped to apps.
